Could you explain to me to what are you referring here.

“TtT, you know ad hominem stuff is off limits. Please address the issues without the invective.Also we have a Mods thread for moderation issues.Tris”

Wasn’t me

On the first moderated part of my post, I was referring to your tone of excusing MW for being unfamiliar with the media.
Tell me you were not being disingenuous.

I wasn’t being disingenuous

You suggested an equivalence in treatment of the two managers, by offering a mitigating factor in MW’s case.

No I didn’t.

You could have said that Mr. Warburton was enjoying the benefit of a friendly media, as had every manager of the former club throughout history and especially, his immediate predecessor.

I could have said that – except I don’t believe it to be 100% true – and it wasn’t the point I was making. The point of having a blog is so we can all say what we think personally – not shoehorn our own position into a space we think others will occupy.
What I said had no tone attached to it – and I think if you read it again carefully, you would agree with that.
I think your problem has more to do with what you inferred from what I didn’t say rather than what I said. Also, the tone of your reply (which I haven’t seen) is what caused it to be moderated (or so I have been informed)

I see my comment @1.31, has an “Awaiting Moderation” notice.

Strange, when it accuses nobody of anything other than questioning how a decision could be reached with so little scrutiny of information given in court.

The reason that organisations have rules is so that every member knows what can and cannot be done within the organisation.

This is to prevent individual persons (or clubs) pushing their own agenda.

SPFL Myopia Flares into Civil War

It must have snuck in there when I wasn't looking.

SPFL Myopia Flares into Civil War
I'm way behind with the blog and much water has snuck under the bridge since my last visit.

So, I have nothing to add to the topic de jour, but I do share the annoyance of the use of "So" that prefaces many responses.

Another one that gets me, is the oft used footballers' post match responses, e.g.


                         " Jamie, you had a great game today and your third goal was special. You must be pleased with that.


               Yes, no, I thought it was a great team performance, etc.

So would HMRC’s legal stance be described as, “Ye canna tak the breaks aff a Hielan’  man”?
